Since a lot of this forum has Japanese stuff, I thought it'd be cool if we learned how to say things in Japanese. I've learned some watching Super Sentai clips with English subtitles and picked them up. Here's a small batch I've learned. If you know more, then please post.

Aibo (Eye-Bo) = Partner
Yuki = Courage
Aka = Red
Ao (Ow) = Blue
Mahou (Mah - ho) = Magic
Mahōtsukai (Mah-Ho-Oots-Kai) = Magician
Bouken (Boo-Ken) = Adventure
Boukensha = Adventurer
Same (Saw-May) = Shark
Neko (Neck-Co) = Cat

Don't know any off the top of my head, but all the colors (in Japanese) are Rangers
in Goranger. Except for Rangers not in that series, like Black, White, Gold, etc.

ELR ;) :D :P B) :)

Apparently, Ki also means something else. Found that out watching the first Go-onger episode with subtitles.

One cheat I thought of. Any word that's been used in a Sentai title has a pretty easy translation... :lol:
